I found this clause and thought it was interesting. I assume the state-to-state transfer restrictions is a Federal law (FFL stuff)? Otherwise it seems like it would be legal in AL.

13A-11-58. Sale of firearms or
ammunition to residents of adjoining
states; purchase in adjoining states.
---
(b) Any resident of Alabama who legally purchases
rifles, shotguns and ammunition in any state
adjoining Alabama may take delivery of said
weapons either in the state where they were
purchased or in Alabama.

Note that it pertains only to "rifles and shotguns". Handgun sales to a non-resident are a no-no.:faint:

Yep, elrod is right. The no state-to-state thing applies only to handguns. I don't think you can legally buy a long gun out of state unless it adjoins AL - according to AL law. The ATF makes no distinctions. I know FFL's can only sell to adjoining state residents. Really stupid!

I bought my AR in GA and walked out of the store with it.

I can't believe I did not know this! So I can buy a long gun in say Columbus, GA and not have to do the FFL transfer? NICE!

Yes, you still have to do the FFL transfer. Hand-to-hand sales are only legal for same state residents.

You still have to do a FFL transfar, but with a long gun living in Al. you can buy in Ga. and walk out of the store with the gun in your hand.

Is it a federal law that you can not buy a hand gun in a state other than where you have legal residence? Or state law?

You can buy C&R pistols out of state with a C&R license.
